No Ordinary Shepherd
As the sun beams brightly on the hills surrounding Palestine, a young shepherd boy thoughtfully considers the significance of the day. The boy, crippled in a terrible accident, has always treasured his father’s tale of that starlit night so many years before—a night filled with the wonder of angelic heralds and a tiny Bethlehem stable sheltering the chosen Messiah. Now, years after that sacred event, tales of Jesus of Nazareth’s miraculous birth touch the young boy’s faith. When he meets the gentle stranger in the hills—a man strangely familiar to him—the faithful young shepherd encounters a miracle of his own.
A young crippled shepherd goes to the field to watch his flock. He reminisces about the story his father told him of the night the Christ child was born, and how his father was among the shepherds who witnessed the miraculous birth of the Messiah.The boy believes his father’s story, so when a stranger appears in the mountain cave the boy tells him the story. The boy shares his food and gives his crutch to the man, who asks what the little shepherd would like in return. The crippled boy asks only to be whole again, and the stranger’s response is “with God all things are possible.” “No Ordinary Shepherd” is an encouraging and delightful story of faith and God’s miracles.
